The only regret we have about our stay at Relais II Falconiere and Spa is that we should have skipped Rome and Venice and just stayed in Cortona at Il Falconiere for three or four more days. Our room was beautifully furnished and romantic. Our wine tour was informative and fun, led by Benny, one of the owners who was... More

What a pleasure to have spent for four nights at the hotel. Everything about it was great - the staff were incredibly helpful, the dinners were to die for, the pool and spa were lovely and the walks in the area were super. The whole atmosphere surrounding the hotel complex was old and delightful.

Superb hotel with a beautiful view and Classic luxury Rooms but the service at their 1 Star Michelin was perhaps the lowest I ever have experienced at a Michelin stared restaurant. We waited 40 min for water so I took the liberty to find it myself, arrogant attitude from the staff beside an older waiter

Dear Guest thanks for spent your time to let your review; it's so important for us.

We had a nice room next to the chapel (got upgraded because the stay was my birthday present); enjoyed the free spa and swimming pool. I booked a back and shoulder massage, excellent though rather pricey. Breakfast was everything one expects from a 5star hotel; on the day of my birthday the hotel staff surprised me with a very nice... More

Friendly and welcoming staff throughout. The service could not be faulted. Our bedroom ( a junior suite) was of a very good standard. Sadly its location let it down slightly..next to the "plunge" pool with swimmers and their towels etc right outside the door. The bar/restaurant area were lovely. The biggest let down was the food which in my experience... More

The property is lovely, just outside Cortona, with a beautifully restored 400 year old villa, surrounded by vineyards and a pool overlooking the Tuscan hills.

Relais Il Falconiere is on a beautiful property. The landscape is gorgeous, the air is fresh, and everything feels serene. Unfortunately, the hotel itself is poorly run and hinders guests' ability to enjoy the setting. My husband and I stayed here for 3 days on our honeymoon. On two of the three nights, the hotel hosted weddings on their property.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The typical Tuscan villa which dates back to the 17th century was the home of the famous poet Antonio Guadagnoli.

The art of refining quality is achieved by caring about details that make a difference.An ideal setting for those who love the beauty of the countryside, the atmosphere of the Relais is quaint with characteristic old-fashioned Tuscan charm. The twenty-two rooms are elegantly furnished-each unique in color and décor and reflecting the classic, refined style of important Tuscan homes. A few rooms are in the antique villa, some attached to the villa’s chapel and others in the cottage. All share the view of the magical landscape of the Cortonese countryside and are fully furbished with every modern comfort.La THESAN ETRUSCAN SPA has the goal of reawakening all of your senses through the harmony of the environment and the flavours and tastes of Tuscany.The Etruscan Thesan Spa guides you to discover the true relaxation, with a unique and unrepeatable involving all five senses.

Staying with us will leave you with everlasting memories.The restaurant is on two floors with a glass and wrought-iron conservatory, overlooking the outside dining terrace with its ancient fishpond and rose-clad pergola.
